“These cereals are all a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre and B-vitamins  and are lower in both sodium and added sugar with very little unhealthy fat. They are not overly heavy in kilojoules and will provide nutritious energy to kick-start your day,” says dietician Celeste Naudé.

All of these cereals are vegan and can be served with milk, nut milk, yoghurt for extra protein and calcium, or simply serve the oats and porridge with water.
